This forthcoming Cap Go Meh (the 15th day of the Lunar New Year and pinnacle of celebrations) will also be festively celebrated in the cool city of Bogor, located only 60 km from Jakarta, or about an hour-and-a-half drive via the toll road. Located at the foot of Mt. Salak, Bogor is famous for its huge botanical garden, the out-of-town Presidential Palace, Biology Museum and best of all: cozy restaurants serving delicious European and Indonesian food.
With a substantial population of Chinese descent, Cap Go Meh here is also gaily celebrated through the Bogor Cap Go Meh Street Festival, to take place on 11 February 2017 along the major Surya Kencana Road. Around 2,500 participants from all communities and art studios will follow the parade, watched by tens of thousands of cheering crowds expected to gather along the streets for this great event. The theme this year is : "Cap Go Meh-Bogor Street Festival, Uniting the Nation through Cultural Events," thereby expressing the conviction of the beauty of diversity which is truly celebrated together.
